Highland Primary Care

At Highland Primary Care, we are committed to helping you maintain optimal health through our comprehensive preventive services. From routine check-ups to specialized screenings and personalized lifestyle counseling, we offer a holistic approach to preventive healthcare.

Routine Check-ups

Regular check-ups are the cornerstone of preventive healthcare. During your visit, our skilled healthcare providers will conduct a thorough assessment of your overall health, including:

  • Physical Examination: A comprehensive physical examination allows us to evaluate your vital signs, body mass index (BMI), and overall physical condition.
  • Medical History Review: We’ll review your medical history, including any chronic conditions, medications, allergies, and past surgeries or procedures.
  • Health Risk Assessment: We’ll discuss your lifestyle habits, including diet, exercise, smoking, alcohol consumption, and stress levels, to identify potential risk factors for disease.
  • Health Education: We’ll provide personalized health education and preventive care recommendations tailored to your individual needs and health goals.

Health Screenings

 

Blood Pressure Screening

High blood pressure (hypertension) is a leading risk factor for heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular conditions. Our clinic offers routine blood pressure screenings to monitor your blood pressure levels and detect hypertension early on. If elevated blood pressure is detected, we’ll work with you to develop a management plan, which may include lifestyle modifications, medication, and ongoing monitoring.

 

Cholesterol Levels

Elevated cholesterol levels can increase your risk of developing heart disease and stroke. Our healthcare professionals offer cholesterol screenings to assess your lipid profile, including total cholesterol, LDL (bad) cholesterol, HDL (good) cholesterol, and triglycerides. Based on your results, we’ll provide dietary and lifestyle recommendations to help you maintain healthy cholesterol levels and reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.

 

Cancer Screenings

Early detection is crucial in the fight against cancer. Our clinic provides a range of cancer screenings to detect cancer in its earliest stages when treatment is most effective:

  • Mammograms: Breast cancer screening is recommended for women starting at age 40, or earlier if you have a family history of breast cancer or other risk factors.
 
  • Pap Smears: Cervical cancer screening is recommended for women starting at age 21, or earlier if sexually active. Pap smears are used to detect abnormal cervical cells that may indicate precancerous or cancerous changes.
 
  • Colonoscopies: Colorectal cancer screening is recommended for adults starting at age 45, or earlier if you have a family history of colorectal cancer or other risk factors. Colonoscopies allow for the detection and removal of precancerous polyps in the colon and rectum.
 
  • Prostate Exams: Prostate cancer screening may be recommended for men starting at age 50, or earlier if you have a family history of prostate cancer or other risk factors. Prostate exams, including digital rectal exams and PSA (prostate-specific antigen) blood tests, help detect abnormalities in the prostate gland.

Immunizations

Vaccinations are a safe and effective way to prevent infectious diseases and protect public health. Our clinic provides a comprehensive range of immunizations for individuals of all ages, including:

  • Flu Shots: Annual flu vaccination is recommended for everyone aged 6 months and older to reduce the risk of influenza and its complications.
  • Tetanus Boosters: Tetanus vaccinations are recommended every 10 years to prevent tetanus (lockjaw) infection.
  • HPV Vaccines: HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccination is recommended for adolescents and young adults to prevent HPV-related cancers and genital warts.
  • Childhood Vaccines: We offer a complete schedule of childhood vaccines to protect against diseases such as measles, mumps, rubella, polio, hepatitis B, and more.
  • Travel Vaccines: If you’re planning international travel, we can provide travel vaccinations and health advice tailored to your destination and itinerary.

 

Lifestyle Counseling

Healthy lifestyle choices are essential for preventing chronic diseases and promoting overall well-being. Our healthcare professionals offer personalized lifestyle counseling to help you make positive changes in the following areas:

  • Diet and Nutrition: We’ll provide guidance on healthy eating habits, portion control, and nutrient-rich food choices to support your overall health and prevent chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
  • Exercise and Physical Activity: We’ll develop a personalized exercise plan based on your fitness level, preferences, and health goals to help you maintain a healthy weight, improve cardiovascular fitness, and reduce the risk of chronic conditions.
  • Smoking Cessation: If you smoke or use tobacco products, we’ll offer evidence-based strategies and support to help you quit smoking and reduce your risk of smoking-related diseases such as lung cancer, heart disease, and respiratory disorders.
  • Stress Management: We’ll teach you stress-reduction techniques such as mindfulness, relaxation exercises, and time management skills to cope with stress more effectively and improve your overall quality of life.
